Not really. But he refused to criticize Pro-Life Wisconsin's celebration of the murder of a women's health doctor & his bodyguard. Of course, Van Hollen was endorsed & received the largest contribution the Pro-Life Wisconsin Victory Fund made in 2006. See previous link.
Last week, in gruesome irony, “pro-life” activists held an event in Milwaukee celebrating the murder of Dr. John Britton and his bodyguard, James Barrett, by anti-abortion stalker Paul Hill.More on this bullshit here. The question is, of course, will J.B. Van Hollen repudiate what an organization who endorsed & financially supported him is doing? I'll never hold my breath for a ReThug to do the right thing. He really ought to return the contribution, after all, he apparently doesn't need it since he donated over $700,000 of his own money to his campaign. Maybe the Ashland County, WI, D.A. Sean Duffy could make this suggestion to his fellow traveler. It would be a wonderful gesture, even more, it would be the correct thing to do. After all, it is one thing to be pro-life (I mean, who isn't?), but it's a whole other thing to be pro-murder.
According to media reports, the “highlight” of the event was “the re-enactment of Hill’s murders,” culminating in a chorus of “Hallelujah” after the man playing Hill pulled his shotgun’s trigger.
